About Me
Hi! My name is Irma 'Aimo' Ahmed, and I'm a freelance illustrator and comic artist living in Malaysia. Art has been my passion since childhood, which I have consistently carried on until now both professionally and as my lifelong hobby.

My Work
I have been drawing professionally since 1997; My illustration work comprise of role-playing game book and trading card-related art for licensed properties by Marvel, DC Comics, Adult Swim and independent publishers, as well as private commissions. My comics-related work in the past has been short stories for local magazines such as Gempak, JOM!, and Komikoo magazine; Currently I am the artist for Fox & Willow, a fantasy web comic collaboration with writer Allison Pang.

You can view my portfolio at my online gallery.

My Aspirations Through This Patreon

  • Little by little, I'd like to start lessening my dependency on volume-heavy assignments to pay the bills, in turn devoting my time and creative energy into quality, purposeful and meaningful work that delights my audience and myself. In doing this, I can:
    • Share my art with my audience in a high-quality format as they are meant to be viewed.
    • Be able to consistently draw fan comics again.
    • Focus on creating my own original comic stories without compromising on detail and vision.
    • Devote to improving my craft as I am from a self-taught background, particularly on my technical skills in digital and analog mediums.
  • I also hope that  through increased patron support, I want to devote part of that to actively manage potential health issues as an artist in the long term, especially in the prevention of repetitive stress injuries which has been very stressful and debilitating from previous personal experience. This includes creating a more ergonomic studio and regular physical therapy/re-calibration for my drawing hand, arm, shoulder and lower back.

Other Ways of Supporting My Endeavours

  • Online Store - I regularly put up my traditional medium artworks for sale, ranging from small to large pieces to decorate living spaces with, as well as handmade trinkets such as acrylic pins.
  • Teepublic - Want to wear my designs? This is the place to browse for the next addition to your wardrobe!

$0 of $150 per month
You have no idea how hard it is to find a decent back-supporting drafting chair in these parts...and I managed to chance on one while browsing on Shopee to replace the IKEA bar stool I've been using for over a decade with my drafting table. Is relief for my lower back in the horizon...? I might just draw a comic about my pining for this vital studio furniture!
